Anxious clients adhere rigidly to erroneous beliefs and coping strategies to ward off fear that keeps them from following through on therapy interventions. The strategic approach to cognitive-behavioral therapy helps clients find the courage and motivation to challenge these old beliefs and attitudes. Practical methods enable clients to disregard the content of their obsessive worries and to explore the feeling of uncertainty rather than fleeing from it. The cutting-edge anxiety treatment is now pushing further into the confrontational. Participants will learn how to help clients purposely seek out anxiety as their ticket to freedom from crippling fear.

Educational Objectives:

  1. To name one primary treatment goal that is consistent will all anxiety disorders.
  2. To describe three paradoxical interventions for anxiety disorders.
